    Apparently some people just can’t let go of the “Modern 3D sonic bad” stigma, even though much of Sonic Colours is so much better than that.

    Also Jim Sterling is a nut with no appreciation for colour’s fantastic aesthetic designs, he didn’t bring them up once.

    Jim Sterling isn’t all that bad, I actually quite like him. People just think he’s trolling when he gives a game a low score. His opinion is as valid as anyone else’s, whether you agree with it or not.

      Don’t get me wrong, he’s entitled to his opinion. I like reading him, too. It’s just that in this instance, I turned him off when he said “Sonic 4 was an improvement.” It’s far from an improvement over anything.

    “Sonic 4 had its problems, but at least it was an improvement.”

    Colors: 78? As RupeeClock said, people forgot what GOOD 3D Sonic games are (secret rings, Adventure, 2, Sonic Unleashed Wii) Plus, IGN gave it an 8.5, both versions.

      None of those games that you listed are good.

      Power to the people, Nickster99 and RupeeClock. I think that if you pretend Big and Amy aren’t present, Sonic Adventure 1 counts too.

    I can’t wait until more bad reviews come up and give Colors Wii a worse metacritic score than S4 Wii has

    Sonic Colors is getting a bad review? ugh You got to be kidding me… Seriously im surprised no one said that Sonic has become too big to fail for Sega. Lets face it EVERYTHING else Sega made post Dreamcast has sucked, didn’t sell or BOTH. Sonic sales are LITERALLY the only reason why Sega has not collapsed financially.
    Shame on you Sega… SHAME!!!!!!

    WTF! C’mon, Sonic Colors is a great game and it got a whole lot of bad reviews.
    Sonic 4 was a great game and got a lot of bad reviews!
    People need to stop thinkin oh, it’s a sonic game and it has some small problems, let’s make them bigger so we can give the game a bad review!
    IGN gave sonic 4 and sonic colors an 8(.5) and they are like the most critic game reviewers around! So, there should be something wrong with a lot of other game reviewers!
